Just wanted to let you know, the planning of Fernie’s Lantern Festival 2016 has begun and we’re cooking up a good one. Here’s a little peek into the theme for this year.
If you’re interested in the event, because it’s a good one, there are a few ways you can help out.
• Make your own lantern to be displayed and paraded about at the festival. Although the theme is Into The Woods, you are more than welcome to create whatever you fancy. We offer space at the Arts Station in the fall, where you will have access to materials and lantern making inspiration. Schedule coming soon!
• Join the team. We are creating an enchanted world for all our festival goers to interact with. It’s a lot of work to put it together and a few extra hands are always welcome. If you’re not into building, there are many other ways you can help us stay organized and on schedule.
• Lend some materials. A lantern festival needs a lot of lights! If you have christmas lights (outdoor) that we can use for the night, we would love to borrow them. All materials to be returned! Promise.
Beyond lights, we are always looking for:
• old bamboo blinds
• long willow branches
• wood scraps
• house spot lights
